Pop Up Polo

Pop-Up-Polo is part of the largest polo circuit in the world, Urban Polo. It will be held at Rockhampton on June 8.

Urban Polo™ has followed this tradition of sporting innovation by developing a variation of polo which is both as exciting to watch as it is to play. It’s defining features include a significantly smaller field (approximately 140m rather than 300m long), which brings the game closer to the spectators, and improves player reflexes as the smaller field means they are usually closely marked by the opponent.
